Automobili Pininfarina Unveils Bespoke Twin Hypercars: Reversario and Anniversario

Battista Reversario

Automobili Pininfarina has reached new heights of automotive craftsmanship with the introduction of the Battista Reversario, a bespoke creation inspired by the Battista Anniversario and the concept of balance. Representing the epitome of ‘Dream Cars. Made Real’, this latest offering underscores Automobili Pininfarina’s commitment to crafting truly unique vehicles in collaboration with its clients.

Each vehicle produced at Automobili Pininfarina’s Cambiano atelier is a testament to individuality, reflecting the distinct personality of its owner. The Battista Reversario stands as a prime example of this ethos, showcasing the level of personalization available to discerning clients.

Collaborating closely with Automobili Pininfarina designers, the client has conceived a one-of-a-kind vehicle that embodies their vision and preferences. Already a collector of automotive rarities, the client’s acquisition of the fifth and final Battista Anniversario model laid the groundwork for the creation of the Battista Reversario.

A standout feature of the Battista Reversario is its unique color scheme, meticulously crafted to be the inverse of the iconic Pininfarina heritage-inspired design theme that characterized the Anniversario. The lower body gleams in Bianco Sestriere gloss, contrasting elegantly with the upper body finished in Grigio Antonelliano gloss.

Continuing the theme, the pinstripes echo the upper stripe in the signature Iconica Blu hue. Custom inscriptions, including the vehicle’s distinctive ‘Reversario’ nameplate, adorn the carbon side wings and the underside of the active rear wing, both forward-facing and in reflection.

Inside the cabin, Pilota seats feature white-on-white Alcantara quilting against a perforated background in Iconica Blu. While the overall ambiance is predominantly black, accent details such as the cupholder retainer, headliner center bezel, and seatbelts are highlighted in Iconica Blu, lending a harmonious contrast.

Completing the ensemble is an exclusive three-piece luggage set tailored to the client’s lifestyle. Crafted from luxurious black leather with Iconica Blu accents and off-white Alcantara quilting, the set exemplifies the ultimate in bespoke craftsmanship.

Speaking on the creation of the Reversario, the client remarked, “Anniversario and Reversario were destined to be created by the Automobili Pininfarina team. I simply challenged them to understand what could be created if you follow your heart and passion. All credit goes to them.”

Dave Amantea, Chief Design Officer at Automobili Pininfarina, emphasized the significance of the Reversario as the ultimate expression of the company’s design philosophy. “Reversario was the ultimate commission. Taking inspiration from the original Anniversario, it is a reflection in every aspect, using a timeless combination of colors to create an opposite that works alone and together,” he stated.

Both the Battista Anniversario and Reversario stand as milestones in automotive history, representing the pinnacle of Italian engineering prowess. Powered by a cutting-edge electric powertrain, these hyper GTs offer unparalleled performance while embodying the luxury and elegance synonymous with the Pininfarina name.

With its blend of hypercar capabilities and GT comfort, the Battista series sets a new standard for automotive excellence, promising an exhilarating driving experience like no other. As the automotive world celebrates the harmony achieved through the creation of the Battista twins, Automobili Pininfarina reaffirms its commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive innovation.

In a harmonious fusion of heritage and innovation, Morgan Motor Company and Pininfarina S.p.A. proudly present Midsummer, a limited series special project celebrating over two centuries of coachbuilding excellence.

The Midsummer barchetta design pays homage to the iconic European coachwork style while showcasing the timeless silhouette flexibility of Morgan vehicles. Crafted on the latest Morgan CX-Generation Bonded Aluminium platform, each Midsummer boasts a turbocharged six-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a dynamic driving experience.

Central to Midsummer’s allure is the sensory connection it fosters between occupants and machine, achieved through its distinctive style and character. Encapsulating this connection is the exterior’s remarkable use of sustainable teak wood, meticulously laminated to create sculpted wood structures surrounding the cockpit and defining a distinctive shoulder line.

Crafted by hand, each aluminium body panel demands over 250 hours of meticulous labour, a testament to the dedication of Morgan’s skilled artisans. Collaborative efforts between Morgan and Pininfarina’s designers and engineers have resulted in a final design that is both surprising and unique.

Limited to just 50 units, all of which have been eagerly claimed by customers following exclusive preview sessions, Midsummer marks a milestone in automotive craftsmanship. Each vehicle is adorned with the “Pininfarina Fuoriserie” badge, a first for a production car, signifying its exceptional status.

Massimo Fumarola, CEO of Morgan Motor Company, expressed pride in Midsummer, stating, “We are incredibly proud to unveil Midsummer, a limited series special project that celebrates two centuries of coachbuilding and embodies the core values of Morgan. It represents the pinnacle of our talented workforce’s craftsmanship.”

Giuseppe Bonollo, SVP Sales & Marketing of Pininfarina, echoed this sentiment, saying, “Together with Morgan, we are proud to lead the coachbuilding movement. This extraordinary collaboration brings together Morgan’s century-old bodybuilding philosophy with Pininfarina’s nearly 95 years of tradition in designing and crafting bespoke vehicles.”

Midsummer’s design journey was marked by intense collaboration, with designers and engineers from both companies working closely to translate shared ideals into reality. The result is a masterpiece that seamlessly blends Morgan’s rich heritage with Pininfarina’s timeless design language.

From its striking exterior to its meticulously crafted interior, Midsummer embodies the essence of automotive excellence. With its limited production and unparalleled craftsmanship, Midsummer promises to become a coveted collector’s item, cherished by enthusiasts for generations to come
